when you don't know what to do...
do the next thing
what'd I ever do to you?
Fuck you very much, Lawrence MA DPW, for destroying the berm in front of my house and that of my neighbor when you replowed my street last night. You left a hunk of snow the size of a boulder smack in the middle of the driveway. Luckily for me, I a) heard you assholes when you did it and b) got up and checked during my 2am trip to the bathroom, so I could change my alarm and get up half an hour earlier than the already ridiculous hour I was getting up, all so I could have time for yet ANOTHER shower before I go to my first day on my new and exciting job. Because I really wanted to show up with my face a hectic red from shoveling (even if my snowblower would start, it's 6am. I can't use it).

Was there a DPW Benevolent Fund I should have donated to? What? What did I ever do to you? Thanks to you, I'll have to hold my mail till the end of the week because I'm not sure when I'll have the time and energy to clear my sidewalk. It was done yesterday, BTW, but you put paid to that.

In closing, you suck for doing this. I hope this comes back around to bite you on the ass. Have a nice day.

Beware of the sidewalk clearing law that came into effect -- it's statewide.

Yeah, I know. I'm just pissed because it was DONE. There was no reason to pull that bullshit.

This is why I was SO grateful not to have a second vehicle to worry about this year.

I share your rant...Got my pitchfork ready to join you!

DPW for the entire state of MA is like that! I cannot for the life of me understand why? I would get it if this were Georgia or the Carolinas where you don't see snow often so you don't know what to do with it but come on this is New England there's SNOW why the Heck don't these jerks know how to do their jobs correctly? They actually undermind the structure of the streets in my area of town by using the wrong equipment to clear the roads...which is why we have lovely pot holes the size of small cars and ripples of frost heaves taller than my DOGS!

Every year I threaten to bring my uncle down here to teach a class to all the DPW on how to take care of roads in snow! Because he NEVER would have done crap like they do here!
